Capcom Announce Price Cut For Resident Evil: Revelations In North America


Capcom has announced that they have dropped the price of Resident Evil: Revelations by $10 in North America.

The Nintendo 3DS title which has just been released in Europe but due for release in North America on February 7th is getting a price reduction from $49.99 to $39.99. It seems that this price cut will be available in North America only. Capcom stated that the reason why the title was priced at $49.99 originally was due to the fact that the game would be shipped on a 4GB card rather than the standard size 2GB card and the price increase was primarily because of this reason.

Late last year we announced the console-sized adventure that is Resident Evil Revelations would arrive on a 4GB card instead of the standard 2GB card; this increase in memory size led to an increase in price as well, raising the retail cost to $49.99. And while we’re confident in the game’s value at that price (and the reviews reflect that sentiment as well), we’re also exceedingly pleased to say that after weeks of effort, we’ve been able to lower the price to $39.99.

Since the announcement of the $49.99 price point, we’ve spent weeks looking for a way to bring your cost down to standard 3DS pricing. Today we can finally confirm we were successful in this, and hope the reduced price encourages even more people to check out this strong entry in the Resident Evil canon.

I’ve gone through this game twice now and as a former member of the press I can plainly state Revelations has enough content to warrant the $49.99 price. But I understand if that’s a little hard to swallow coming from a now-Capcom employee, so I’ll let the other high marks speak for themselves.
